Bolling, Robert (b. 26 DEC 1646, d. 17 JUL 1709)
Note: Colonel John Bolling settled, lived and died at "Cobbs", on the Appomattox, below Petersburg. He engaged in commerce, and while conducting an "extensive and gainful trade" with his countrymen, and a yet larger one with the Indians, "partook freely at the same time of all the pleasures of society, for which his gay and lively spirit eminently adapted him. Being once, in england, at a feast given him by a kinsman, a Yorkshire lady, hearing him talk, exclaimed in Yorkshire, dialect, "Oh, mine Got, you no hear dat man, and he talk English as well as we". "Yes, faith madam, and I hope much better, or I would not talk at all" was his hasty, and not overgallant, reply: "Whereat all did laugh merrily".

Robert Bolling, the first of the name in Virginia, was the son of John and Mary Bolling, of All Hallows, Barkin Parish, Tower street, London. John was of the Bollings of Bolling Hall, near Bradford, England, who trace back their descent to Robert Bolling, Esquire, who, in the reign of Edward IV, owned that beautiful seat, and who, dying in 1485, was buried in the family vault in Bradford church. His coat of arms is affixed on his tomb, and being the only one in the church, he was presumably the builder or chief benefactor of it. The Robert of this notice came to Virginia in 1660, when not yet fifteen years of age--seems to have early attained to fortune and prominence--and at twenty-nine, married Jane Rolfe. She dying, he married Miss Anne, daughter of Drury Stith. He lived and died at "Kippax," a fine seat on James river, below Petersburg, now
in ruins; but his remains were removed thence by a great-grandson (by his second marriage) in 1838, to a mausoleum, erected by the latter in Blandford Cemetery. I find no further special notice of Jane Rolfe.

Left England at 14 years old. In 1660 he settled at Kippax, Prince George's County, Virginia. He was Justice of Charles City Co. before 1698. High Sheriff 1699; surveyor 1702. Colonel and County Lt. 1705-09.

Rolfe, John (b. 6 MAY 1585, d. ?)
Note: His son Thomas was left in England to be raised after Pocahontas died, John came back and Married again. He never saw his son again.
John first married Sarah Hacker in England in 1608.He was sent to Jamestown, Va as a political man to report back to England about the Colonies and their wealth. The Ship that he took over was named "The Ses Venture" which then ran aground in the Bermuda Hundreds.

The Sea Venture was the flagship of a nine-ship convoy of 500 new settlers. By July, the ships
had reached the West Indies where they were struck by a hurricane. The Sea Venture ran
aground on a reef off the Bermudas, but the entire company of 150 safely reached shore in the
ship's boats.

While on Bermuda, John Rolfe's wife had given birth to a daughter who was christened Bermuda, but the child died there. Rolfe's wife also died, probably soon after they reached Virginia.

Rolfe was a pious man who agonized for many weeks over the decision to marry a heathen. He
composed a long, laborious letter to Governor Dale asking for permission to marry Pocahontas.
The letter reflected Rolfe's dilemma. The tone suggests it was intended mainly for official records, but at some points Rolfe bared his true feelings. "It is Pocahontas," he wrote, "to whom my hearty and best thoughts are, and have been a long time so entangled, and enthralled in so intricate a labyrinth that I (could not) unwind myself thereout."  The wedding took place in the spring of 1614. It resulted in peace with the Indians long enough for the settlers to develop and expand their colony and plant themselves permanently in the new land.

In 1616 Rolfe took his wife and infant son Thomas to England, Pocahontas died at Gravesend
seven months later, just before returning to Virginia. A sad John Rolfe left his young son in the care of a guardian in England and returned to his adopted home.

Father: John Rolfe* b: 17 OCT 1562 in of Heacham, Norfolk, England
Mother: Dorothy Mason* b: 1559 in Heacham, Norfolk, England

The Sea Venture
The "Sea Venture" (also called the Seaventure or Sea Adventure) sailed as part of a flotilla of nine ships commanded by Admiral Sir George Somers. Intended destination was Jamestown, Virginia. The On 2 June 1609, "Sea Venture", flagship of the "Third Supply" (six ships and two pinnances); departed London. On 23 July, A hurricane at sea separated the Sea Venture from the other vessels. After four days, she began taking on water. Land was sited and she wrecked between two reefs off the shores of Bermuda on 28 July 1609. All of approximately 150 passengers safely made land. Two pinnances were built during the following nine months, the "Deliverance" and the "Patience". These vessels sailed on to Virginia 10 May 161, leaving two men behind. 19 June 1610 Sir George Somers volunteered to return to Bermuda aboard the "Patience" for supplies for the struggling colony of Virginia. He arrived in Bermuda, dying there in November of 1610. Captain Matthew Somers returned to England aboard the "Patience" with his uncle's body. Three men were left on the islands to hold the claim. 

From List of Passengers:
John Rolfe*, a young man in his twenties and traveling with his wife. Their baby girl was born in Bermuda, christened Bermudas and died shortly thereafter. His wife died shortly after reaching Virginia Spring 1610 and he married Pocahontas in April 1614.
